Yea the Dingoes, good OZ band from the 70's. I am originally from Liverpool in UK and was brought up on the fabulous music of the 60's. A lot of great music at that time coming from the US as well ...but hey the music goes on past and present right? " Blues is a feeling" as Little Walter sang. That's a picture of me standing in the Cavern Club in Liverpool about 2008. Will contact Nate at Adam Gussow's site. Will look out for that CD!..or let me know down the track.
I have" Buyers Remorse" now with the Bulletini ...lol! Trying to find that vintage sound is difficult. Learning some Little Walter tracks at the moment "My Babe" and Sad Hours" but will never sound like him but hey..I can be myself right?
Might look into the JT30's and the Shure Undidyne.
I wish like hell I could somehow justify buying a "Bulletini" would love to try one out.
I own two JT30's and a Shure Unidyne (Butter style) for amped playing, and Shure 57's
for acoustic playing and vocals. If you contact Nate (nacoran) at Adam Gussow's site
he'll help you get your account and password worked out.
I have a very good friend lives a couple hours south of me here in Florida, he is a great
guitar and bass player from Australia, played with a group called the "Dingos" and is
a member of the Australian Rock And Roll HOF. He is a fine songwriter too! The first
time we played some of his material live, he told me I made him feel like Willie Nelson!
His name is John Bois, we may end up producing a CD together, look out.
"Always Be Yourself.......Unless You Can Be Little Walter.......Then Be Little Walter"
Yeah man, for whatever reason I get jury summons about every two-three years, must be my
honest face, and fair and balanced demeanor. Muwha-ha-ha-ha!
Yeah, I do listen to Gordon Lightfoot, used to play 'Edmond Fitzgerald" with a Folk guy whose
recordings I played on in the early 90's. I think he did it in Gm, but I couldn't swear to it. been
a while now, Lightfoot spins a good yarn.

Thanks Reed for your prompt reply and info.
Liked your "About me".
Nobody is going to help you become a harp player overnight. It takes hours of practice. Have been playing 4yrs now and still learning!!
Your comment..." If you can't hear it in your head it will not come out, ever." This is so true.
I did buy a Bulletizer from Greg Heumann ...great little mic for cupping, easier to hold and less fatiguing than the 520DX. I did join Gussow's www.modernbluesharmonica very early in the piece but forgot my password. So didn't frequent the site and just concentrated and worked hard on my music. Will go back to Adam Gussow's site and check out the members in OZ.
Yep what Dex said. I won't go the YouTube route to post here, it is ridiculous that we should have to.
I had a lot of tunes here when it was the old site. A lot of the "New And Improved" Harmonica Club is
actually "Cheap And Redundant", just the way it is and not likely to change, ever.
Why does the old saw "Useless As Tits On A Slab Of Bacon" come to mind, hmm?
Whew! What a day, 10 hours of jury duty. When I just wanna kick back and just listen to some
music (much harder than it seems when you have been playing for as long as some of us here,
the tendency is to pick up and start playing along) I go back to some of my all time favorites,
Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash. I really like a good story, and tho' I've heard the tunes
hundreds of times, the mental images from the tunes are always enriching.

Thanks Suave_ Blues_Man. Lot of info in there!
M8, being as you are in Oz, it would probably be prohibitively expensive for you to deal with
a vender here in the states, what with shipping and all. I would advise that you checkout Adam
Gussow's www.modernbluesharmonica, the reason I recommend this site is there are several
members from various parts of Australia who are knowledgeable as to who might offer those
services in your area. Adam's site is free to join. You must join to have access to posting questions
on the FORUM section. I am there (Reever Sorio) as well as some other members from here at
the HC. It is a Blues Harmonica centric site, but here is a lot of excellent information available to
anyone who plays harmonica, diatonic or chromatic. However, for here in the states, my go to guy
is Greg Heumann of BlowsMeAwayProductions, IMO he builds the finest harmonica element on the
market today, hands down. www.blowsmeaway.com

I can't get any videos on My Wall WHY?
Does anyone have any information or know how on converting my Green Bullet 520 DX from a dynamic element to a crystal element?
The reading I have been doing, it seems an expensive exercise. Cheers. Lithy.
Yea, it looks like a very experienced site, just what I'll need,
thanks for the welcome Deb
That's a good version. You got the bend right in the second verse.
